Disappointment as Donegal constituencies to remain unchanged for next Dáil

first_imgDonegal will remain divided in the next Dáil after the publication of the Constituencies Commission Report for 2017.Nine of Donegal’s electoral divisions were moved to Sligo-Leitrim in the last boundary review in 2012.There had been hopes that these would be returned to the five-seat Donegal constituency, but South Donegal will stay in Sligo-Leitrim for the next Dáil election. Following last year’s census, the Government commissioned the publication of the report, which was delivered this week.There were several submissions made regarding the South Donegal area, but the report recommends that these parts of Donegal, including Bundoran and Ballyshannon, will remain a part of the four-seater Sligo-Leitrim constituency.There are no changes to the five-seater Donegal constituency.The Dáil will pass the legislation in the autumn when the report will come into effect.
